Liberation day is fully upon us. That means it is impossible to go down town Kuwait City without having been involved in at least 20 drive by foamings or attacked with silly string. Tonight will get super crazy. We even saw people get out of the car and surround another car completely covering it in foam and silly string. Flags are up ever where and adorn many cars.

Well it is Liberation day weekend here. While in town the other night with a house guest of ours we had packs of kids surround us and assault us with spray foam and shaving cream. All through out town at night now this is a very common site. There were packs of folks on foot as well as car to car or SUV to SUV battles as a family had kids out each window and several out the sun roof hosing down other cars.
Also this weekend Heather had accompanied me into the desert to hang with some friends of ours. While out there we had to help some folks with a car problem. For the assistance we got to take some picts of their pet falcon and they gave us a water bottle of fresh camel milk which we drank some of with them.
All in all a pretty good weekend. Actually for me it is a pretty long weekend as I have 5 days in a row off to celebrate Liberation day. Flags are everywhere right now covering town.

Heather and I have purchased and now have a gym set up in one of the guest bedrooms. So I beleive that jumps us to a 4 star hotel instead of a 3 star. Continentel breakfast is still not available as of yet.
Liberation day starts here this weekend and already the fireworks can be heard from the villa. There are flags on ever highway post all through out the country. The roads are going to get crazy with people with silly string and shaving cream. I hear traffic gets to a dead slow roll as folks party and spray one another. Pictures to follow.

Here is where I spend alot of time here. Either to and from work or to and from the grocery store for small runs. Thats always fun though. Still not use to the trunk being in the front of the car. With some of my allowance next month I may buy the iPod hookup so the play list will display on the PCM GPS screen. I know what many of you are thinking. SUPER COOL.
Tomorrow we are off to a friends farm where he has chickens, horses, a monkey, ostrich and many other animals. Should be a good time. I am going to ride an ostrich. Picts to follow.

My apologies for having not posted in a few days but the internet service provider here has been down for a few days. Oh well so is life.
Have had a few cool adventures as of late. Heather and I drove into the desert to watch the sunset and look for camels. Had a nice afternoon. The desert is in bloom with blades of green grass and yellow flowers. Not for long though I hear as summer is approaching soon enough and will dry it all up and take it all away from us. Then it will be dust and hot searing heat. Upwards of high 120's at times. Quite the drastic change from freezing cold just a few months ago. Ah yes, life in the desert.
The car is doing well. I drive her every single day and enjoy every single second of it. I just can't see owning anything less ever again after driving this car.
Well keep in touch and stay safe all.
